United in Christ
Today’s Gospel continues Jesus’ long prayer in chapter 17 of John’s account. When read completely through, the reader gets a sense of how much Jesus cares for his people. He truly longs for the day when all will know him and be united to the Father. As you think about this Easter season, how have you grown in relationship with Christ? Like Paul, we must take courage as we bear witness within our families and communities. Today’s Readings: Acts 22:30; 23:6 –11; Psalm 16:1– 2a and 5, 7– 8, 9 –10, 11; John 17:20 – 26.
